Oh! Well this explanation certainly helps! Thanks. No wonder. Maybe
something we should make former users aware of too. I, too, usually just do
an install with *.rpm option, but I had some other old rpms in this same
location, so I just tried to pick off the AOO4 ones. But I missed some.

Anyway, all good for now. I am looking forward to some testing now! :)
